A Baker’s Dozen of Blues: March 24, 2014

A Baker's Dozen Of Blues

A Baker’s Dozen Of Blues

Let’s start out with good news, George Thorogood is still rockin’ dem blues as he celebrates his 40th year of touring! An amazing feat and he still brings the energy and excitement (and just a little cheese) to his shows that make for an incredible evening.
We got a chance to catch up with George in Jacksonville, FL and enjoy his show featuring our good buddy Jim Suhler (who’s new release is on our chart) on guitar, and long time accomplice and one of the best rock and roll drummers, Jeff Simon on the one cymbal – HAH!  George had the super up and coming artists Selwyn Birchwood open for him thru Florida, that’s a great way to keep them blues alive & thrivin’ thanks Big George!

Not very good news, as many of us know Walter Trout has not had an easy road these days, he needs a new liver and it is crucial that it happens soon. These medical and living expenses add up quickly. So help if ya can by reading further.

Lisa Mann -  'Move On'

Lisa Mann -
‘Move On’

One person who is doing something positive for him is Lisa Mann. When you purchase her brand-spank new release ‘Move On’ Lisa will donate $5 to assist Walter and family with these expenses. Look ya gonna buy this CD anyway (we preview it this week ads a Women In Blues Amuse Bouche) so why not do double good by going here to buy it. http://www.lisamannmusic.com/buy-move-on-direct-and-help-walter-trout/ .

Our #1 this week is the fabulous and talented Andra Faye & equally fabulous and talented Scott Ballentine and their release ‘Laying Down Our Blues’ congrats to these two for proving that loud screaming guitars ain’t the only blues in town.

Thanks for the great response to our St. Paddy’s Day everybody’s Irish feature, that was fun to put together and glad y’all dug it. This week we honor Contemporary Women in the Blues. Several of them have new releases out or at just about to release it, so support them by buying their music, seeing their shows, and listening to only internet radio that pays royalties to the artists.

Photo Gallery: 2013 Thru The Eyes of Blues411′s Leslie Joseph

With over 25 major festivals and shows this year, we covered a whole lot  of ground keeping the Blues thriving.

Leslie shot over 18,000 photos at these and we decided to give her some space to present her very best, or at least some of her favorites from the past year. There were many more that could be here, trust me, but we needed to whittle down to give a super and not too lengthy overview of the year.
Thank you to all the festivals, shows and artists that allowed us to be part of the framily for the day we appreciate you so much.

Photo Gallery: Weekend in Charleston, SC.

What a great weekend past for us and the Blues.
This was perfect evidence that our beloved genre is still alive and well and thriving.

Starting out with a Friday evening of Gracie Curran & The High Falutin’ Band, then on Saturday to the Lowcountry Blues Club IBC elimination event, then onto Karen Lovely Band. Sunday brought a visit to with my nephew and family and Eden Brent finishing up our musical portion of the weekend.

Monday found us tripping Savannah with two wonderful artists and friends Karen Lovely & Lisa Mann. All in all a great weekend for the Blues.

November weekend in Charleston

Garcie Curran at Home Team BBQ, LowCountry Blues Club IBC Challenge at Smokey's, Karen Lovely at the Knights of Columbus and Eden Brent at Mad River for the Holy City Blues Dance Exchange. Oh yeah, and we saw our nephew and his family and a big turkey on King Street.
